No matter what you think, coming to the ED in an ambulance does not mean that you get to STAY in the ED and not go outside to register and wait your turn.
The ambulance is not a taxi.
The ambulance is not a free pass.
Just because you picked up the phone and called 911 and they came and got you and they brought you to the ED does not mean that you are having an emergency.
Who decides if you're having an emergency? That's right. ME.
Just because you were here two days ago for your 99-degree fever and slight cough does not mean that you get to be ahead of all the people with 101 fevers and coughs who have been waiting three hours to be seen. You're no sicker now than you were then.
Lying down on the floor (EW! do you KNOW what has been on the floor before you lay there?) is NOT going to get you my sympathy. In fact, what it will get is a doctor hovering over you, telling you to get up, you're fine, and then two security guards to escort you to the waiting room.
